Ni visit to Zambia would be complete without visiting the falls. From our hotel, The Royal Livingston, we could easily walk to the falls. While it was the dry season there were still spectacular falls in places. Be aware of the so-called guides along the paths who will tell you the best places to see the falls. They will "offer"...

One of the seven wonders of the world. August a great time to see it from the Zimbabwe side. Walking tour or self tour gives you time to take wonderful pictures

The falls are really beautiful. We were there in September and there's plenty of water but not so much that the spray hides the falls. We had an excellent guide.It's about a 3 mile walk.

Whilst the falls are technically in Zambia, Zimbabwe has the best views. In September there is less water, but equally less spray so you can see the falls themselves. Its a 3km gentle stroll to see the whole thing and well worth it. You pay to get in (10 USD).

It costs $30 to enter the Victoria Falls area but you can pay in about ten currencies so get rid of your old currencies. The park is quite well signposted to the various viewing points but it would be helpful to know how far each one is as you end up walking quite a long way from the entrance. We... More

Although we were there at the end of the dry season, there was still a lot of water flowing over the falls. The meandering walk, both on the Zimbabwean and Zambian sides allows for a lot of different views and while some were familiar from photographs there were others that surprised.

What can I say? You've come all this way to see a wonder of the natural world. Take your time, walk everywhere, and just stand and enjoy the falls in all their different moods and from many different angles.
